how all tho lack of organization was
duo tho fact that the members of the
department had no official home, no
quarters which they could control
and In which they could take pride
in maintaining. Ho showed how
the members could not feel the

Eugene O'Connell spoke objecting
to tho Marshfleld and Eastsldo ferry
landing at the foot of Douglas
street. Mr. O'Connell gavo two rea
sons for his objections: first, ho bo
lleved a ferry landing would work
Injury to tho wharf from a ship
ping standpoint; second, ho owns
property In tho vicinity. Opening his
speech ho went Into tho city's his
tory and told how ho was ono of tho
property owners who at ono tlmo
wished to dedicate tho wharf to tho
city with tho understanding that
tho city would keep It up. "And,"
said Mr. O'Connell, "two of tho
members of tho city council scoffed
at mo and said It was a burlesque
for me to expect tho city to keep
up tho wnterfront.
"If wo dedicate Douglas street
as a ferry boat landing we will have
no wharfage loft. Tho city's ship
ping will havo to go either up or
down tho bay. Not only that but
when yom assign that trt to the
county court for a ferry landing
it passes out of your hands forever.
It will be but a question of tlmo
until It will bo under control of -a
corporation. But I havo been talk
ing from the standpoint of the city's
welfare. I have another object of
my own. I own a lot along side tho
proposed ferry landing. Now if tho
town takes that street and deprives
me of my rights I am Injured. Not
only that but there aro others. If
this thing Is carried through we will
make a fight and the people cannot
Claude Nasburg then addressed
the council supplementing Mr. O'Gon
nell's remarks. Ho divulged a pleco
of news to the city when ho said that
parties wero planning the erection
of a warehouse on the ground pro
posed to bo dedicated to a ferry land
ing. The names of the parties plan
ning the Improvement were not men
tioned either by Mr. O'Connell or
